SNAPshot | Skinny Kitchen Makeover, Beauty Tips, Muscle Soreness, and Lemon Ginger Water

Where did the summer go!? Did yours fly by like mine? I seriously can’t believe that August is almost over.

This summer has been filled with great opportunity for our business, and my goal has been to share as much of that with you as possible… because when I prosper, so do you! I want to teach you the lessons I’ve learned, and help you elevate your life to whatever level you desire.

I’ve been deep in a few social media platforms this summer, so let’s start this SNAPshot recap with a little social media deep dive!


Social Media Chat – The Hottest Thing in Social Media RIGHT NOW

What’s HOT in social media? I’ve got ONE word for you…STORIES. Facebook (and Instagram) are HEAVILY investing time and money into stories.

Stories are where it’s at!

Why? Because that’s where people are paying attention. That’s where influencers are having the ability to influence. It’s where people are making an impact – through storytelling. Which is kinda cool because it allows you to cut through the “crap” and get to the real person.

Sure a person’s photos might look great and their life might look perfect…but do they have a personality? Can they connect?

Look, you don’t need a fancy car or picture perfect life in order to gain influence or followers because followers are bored with that. But you have to know what it means to be captivating or annoying…what works and what doesn’t.

Good news! I just released a quick episode on Build Your Tribe with 20 things you want to AVOID doing on stories right now…and what you should be doing instead.


Beauty Chat – Post Workout Clean Hair Hack (do not screenshot the video below! it’s embarrassing)

Clean hair hack!!! Ummmmm… excuse me? Are you suggesting that I not wash my hair!?? Well…. Sort of, LOL.

I have very fine, blond hair… which means if I wash my hair everyday, it gets thrashed. So, I’ve come up with some hair hacks that I think you’re going to love!

This was sparked by the countless messages I get about my bangs. First, thank you for noticing (kissy emoji LOL)… my bangs are pretty fantastic! And over the years I’ve figured out exactly HOW to keep them looking that way when I sweat. So here’s a video on how I keep them looking fresh and fantastic!

You’re welcome! Oh and please…do NOT screenshot this.

Podcast Chat – Skinny Kitchen Makeover

I know you’ve heard the quote, “abs are made in the kitchen” and even though we’re tired of hearing it… it’s TRUE!!

Okay, let’s get real for a moment. Get in here. Bring it in. I’m standing right in front of you, and you and I are eye to eye right now. Listen… your health starts in the kitchen. Physical health, mental health, emotional health… Kitchen! What we put in our bodies, determines everything! Disease, clarity, gut health, mood, energy, and the list goes on.

That means it’s time to make your kitchen a priority.

You know how when you put on a new pair of running shoes, you all of a sudden feel faster? Or getting a couple new workout outfits motivates you to get back into the gym? Well… the same is true for your nutrition, and THAT starts in the kitchen.

The right tools will completely change how you feel about cooking. All of a sudden you’ll be looking forward to it… you’ll WANT to spend time in the kitchen.

Because I know just how important this is, I just released a podcast on how to give yourself a skinny kitchen makeover. Just click the thumbnail image to get the episode! OH! and it would mean the world to me if you subscribed to the Chalene Show while you’re over on iTunes.

>>> Here’s a list of some of the tools mentioned in the episode and where to find them.


Fitness Chat – Muscle Soreness: How Sore is Too Sore?

We’ve all rolled out of bed feeling like we got hit by a truck… that full-body-overtaking muscle soreness… and you think “In all that is holy!!! What the heck did I do yesterday!” If you’ve ever woken up and thought something similar to this… make sure you take a moment and give a shout out to your parents. “I would like to thank my mom and day for this amazing muscle soreness…. I wouldn’t feel what I feel today without them.” Then shed a tear as you accept your muscle soreness award, exit stage left.

WHY should you be thanking your parents? Because soreness is actually rooted in our genetics. Kinda crazy right?

So whether you get sore or not, that is a main function of your genetic makeup. The key is understanding your body, and honestly asking yourself, “Am I TOO sore today? Or… am I not sore because I’m not pushing myself hard enough?” Know your body. Know if you can give more…. And also know when it might be time to pull back. Below are some quick tips on soreness and to know if you might be pushing yourself too hard.


Food Chat – Back by Popular Demand: My Lemon Ginger Water Recipe (Plus, My New Favorite Snack)

This week, I made a fresh batch of my lemon ginger water…like I do every week. I got tons of questions about the recipe and how to make it. I’ve shared this before, but I want to share it again in case you missed it. Watch this video for all the details and make a batch of your own!

AND…OMG, if you need a good crunch, you’ve got to try my favorite grain free chip! They’re called Siete Chips, and things are like crack! Everyone in our office loves them and my husband is obsessed. The best flavor is lime and you can get them at Whole Foods and even on Amazon, but beware – these are addicting!


Just For Fun Chat – A Kid’s Take on Kindness: Something We Can All Learn From

Can I warm your heart for a minute? I’ve made a new friend, and even though he’s a kid, I think we can all learn from what he has to say…


Beauty Chat – How to Apply False Eyelashes Like a Pro

I get questions all the time about how I put on my fake eyelashes so quickly. It’s been hard to show you on Snapchat exactly how I do this – you know… holding my phone, hitting record, and putting on lashes at the same time and all. Today, I had my makeup done to film some really exciting content for my soon-to-be-released diet program, so I thought I’d record you a quick video. In this video, the one and only Tiffany Lee Bymaster shows you how to apply lashes within seconds. She’s the one who taught me! Check it out…



Thank you for continuing to connect with me here! You know me so well… and you know that I love love love hearing from you. So don’t forget to leave me a comment below and tell me what upcoming topics you’d like me to SNAP about!

    Also wondering–are they really good at holding up to your fitness routine as well as sauna sessions?

  3. I have tried the lemon ginger water without cayenne and it’s delicious. I’m moving one step at a time. Also got my push goal journals!!!

  4. You are amazing! Love this blog & trying to decide which Charlene BB program to start with to get fit. Maybe ChaLean again…?? Thanks for posting so much great information – the hairdo time saver & ginger water recipe. Woohoo!!

  5. Love the shower cap & goggles! I have been doing the shower cap thing too, because I am a swimmer along with PiYo! My favorite! Check out Shhhhsssh Shower Caps! Although they say they are xl for big hair, they could be bigger….. Maybe you can make one, really big, for those of us with Marge Simpson hair-dos!

  6. 💚LifeHacks & Tips!! Thanks for keeping it real & humble… Have truly been inspired to get it right in my gut from your brain pics as wells as the beta test=LifeRestorationDiet Study💥

  7. I’ve not come here before to see/watch/read your tidbits of information. It was FUN. Thanks for sharing about how you do your bangs. I was one of the gals that asked that question. I have fine (very curly) hair as well and a bit of a high forehead. I’m attempting to grow my hair longer and was curious about your bangs. Thanks Charlene!!

    You are a true inspiration and any time I need encouragement, a positive person to hear, or just a laugh I check your FB and blog! Thanks for all you do!

  10. Flynn is the cutest flipping thing ever. I was beaming when I saw him show up on snap the first time and then this video was PERFECT! Sometimes the littlest ones are the wisest ones because they see the world with the loving simplicity that we should – like little angels incarnate (until they start screaming LOL). Hope to see him again 🙂

    Also – brought Siete chips into the house and did a taste test. Lime is definitely the best FOR SURE but the best part is that EVERYONE in the house loves them, including my boyfriend’s son. 🙂

  11. ❤️ Thanks for the catch up Chalene! I like knowing which content I may have missed during the week. Love your podcast and snaps. ❤️

  12. ❤️ Chalene I was listening to one of your older podcasts about organization and you mentioned a label maker that you keep near your front door. I think you said it was a Brother P Touch? There are numerous p touches. Is yours handheld or one of the larger ones? Do you have the model number or picture of it? Thanks. Ps loved all your snaps from the wedding this weekend. I totally got your jokes! 😉

  13. Good morning 😊! I am feeling defeated lately. I am usually a really positive and optimistic person. I have advocated and helped/still helping so many family members. I am wondering if the PUSH journal can inspire me, and help me out of this funk. Thoughts? TIA

  14. One of the things I love about your snaps is that the topics are well rounded & cover a nice range of topics but since you asked….my top 3: health (I actually throw nutrition/food in with this category as well so a combo), organization, relationships. Appreciate what you do for your lifers with your SC, podcasts, etc. Thank you!!! ❤️🙏🏼❤️

  15. ❤️🤸💅👠💄🎤🥑🍋🌶️🥛🎨🎙️📕🆙 I like to download your podcasts for offline listening and to show others how easy it is to download podcasts. If I use Android apps rather than iTunes, is it still helpful for ratings? I do know it’s definitely helpful for me!💕

  16. I am a silent follower. I love all that you do for us. I love anything you do regarding health, fitness & relationships. I have been Binge listening to your podcast!❤️😀👍

  17. love all the tips and tricks! Can’t wait for my PUSH journals to arrive! My life is in the middle of a HUGE change and I am so excited about the possibilities!!
